The Outstanding Volunteer Award recognizes a member of the Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists for contributions to the Council that are considered above and beyond the normal for a volunteer member. These contributions may be on behalf of the Council or pharmacy in general and may be made at the local, state or national level. The Executive Committee of ICHP has the sole responsibility of the selection of the recipient of the award and should complete the selection process approximately one month prior to the ICHP Annual Meeting. The Executive Committee may select any member regardless of membership category as the recipient of this award.
The award is presented by the President-elect at the ICHP Annual Meeting in an appropriate setting that will provide a maximum of recognition for the recipient and their contributions. The Executive Committee will notify the ICHP office staff of their decision so that the appropriate award may be procured. The Executive Vice President or other ICHP staff member shall also notify the recipient in advance to ensure that the recipient is present for the presentation ceremony unless it can be guaranteed that the recipient will be present through some other mechanism.
The Outstanding Volunteer Award recipient will also be recognized with all other ICHP award recipients in the issue of the KeePosted that immediately follows the Annual Meeting. A copy of the award presentation text will be provided to the recipient so that their achievement may also be recognized by their employer.
